Beowulf Cluster Kernel for Distributed OS (with GUI)? : linux
* skip to the IDEA in case you drgaf *
Disclaimer: Before you flay me, hear me out, I largely get why this might usually be a foul concept (i.e. individuals making an attempt to run a single recreation distributed on a number of completely different MBs). I additionally know sufficient to be fairly assured that this may be finished, although it might be tremendous time consuming and never value it in any respect.. however I am strapped for money and It’d be good to have a pc that is higher at multitasking than any considered one of these items of sh-… I imply ~2013 ultrabooks..
whereas particular person duties cannot be distributed throughout machines (as a result of bus size and delay stuff), I feel it might be doable to distribute applications as particular person real-time jobs and deal with every program on a unique machine. To pace issues up the desktop GUI might be rendered on every node and summed/layered on the top node to kind the total OS GUI. I am certain this might add some overhead but it surely might be fast sufficient to be value it if the headnode is not too gradual.
I am hoping there’s one thing like this on the market already as a result of I am fairly certain you might modify an current kernel to get this going however I additionally understand how tough that would get… however I am open to modifying the kernel myself to attempt to get this going. are there any VMs that may simulate clustered setups? or may this be finished by linking a number of parallel situations of VMs….
